Back in February, Foodbuzz had an essay contest to win a ticket to A Tastesful Pursuit Dinner hosted by Share Our Strength. I actually won and have been waiting ever since to come to this fabulous event: dinner cooked by well known chefs with proceeds going to finance programs that eradicate child hunger! The dinner took place at Charlie Palmer last Wednesday.
Here are a few shots of the gorgeous views from the Penthouse rooftop!
And then the weather turned and it began pouring!
While on the rooftop, we enjoyed fabulous appetizers, wine, and beer. I especially liked melon cubes with red caviar and beet merengues!
The dinner consisted of 5 courses, each paired with wine. I was a bit tipsy when everything was said and done. The room was gorgeous!
The food was really good, but my favorite was the dessert. It was so rich and sweet that I could not even finish the whole thing...and that's something that doesn't happen too often.
There were powerful speeches by U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack and MD Governor Martin O'Malley. This was a fabulous evening.
